Jezzin - General view.

..... ....On the main Jezzin-Sidon road are the villages of Homsiye and Rum. The latter is surrounded by vineyards, pine forests and orchards. Three kilometers west of Rum lies Anan, an old Byzantine settlement, famous for its artificial lake, fed by the Litani River through a 16 km-long tunnel. West of Anan is a small Crusader fort, known as Abi al Hasan Citadel, located on an 80m high promontory. Continue in the direction of Sidon to the villages of Leba (22 km) and Kafr Jarra (23 km) where second millennium B.C. rock-cut tombs have been excavated. One of these is located near the rear wall of a small house near the village entrance. It is in the vicinity of the old church. Near Kafr Jarra is the Church of Saint John the Baptist, one of the oldest churches in the area. It was built in the 16th century and restored for the first time in 1755 may be seen from the inscription above its main entrance. This church was partly destroyed by the Israeli bombardment and the Lebanese Directorate of Antiquities is presently restoring it. The area south of Jezzin displays beautiful scenery. In the midst of pine forests and orchards lie the villages of Kfarhuna, Aramta, Rihan, Ayshie and al-Jarmak. West of Aramta are the villages of Mallikh, Lwayze and Jernaya. All these localities are important summer resorts because of their beautiful natural environment and their healthy climate..... ....
